"...there is something futile, mediocre, even (I am tempted to say) foppish about speech. By contrast, how the gravity of nature and her silence startle you, when you stand face to face with her, undistracted, before a barren ridge or in the desolation of the ancient hills." --Goethe, as quoted by Huxley in Doors of Perception
It's interesting how things happen. I had never met these people before, and only spent maybe 15 hours with them, yet it feels like we're old friends. Thanks @paigebranam_ for throwing me this invite (even though I never got that granola bar). Thanks @heidielyse @matejmatic @eevabo @rohanshah9999 for putting up with me on the drive up. Super glad you survived that car pass on the drive up @mxiiness! Thank you @stephjianni for setting this all up, and thanks everyone else for being such a badass group of people: @justintay81 @serenanixon_ @melissa_brandle @vivalacourtnehh @micah_cline_ @solange_marie_ @drewcolins @_claudssss_ @alexiroseproductions @flowframez You guys best believe I'll be throwing you some invites for camping and night photography... So get ready
When a friend calls to me from the road
And slows his horse to a meaning walk,
I don't stand still and look around
On all the hills I haven't hoed,
And shout from where I am, What is it?
No, not as there is a time to talk.
I thrust my hoe in the mellow ground,
Blade-end up and five feet tall,
And plod: I go up to the stone wall
For a friendly visit.
